    Yes, one in chamber

    I've had a permit since 2000, but only recently started carrying with a round in the chamber. A video by Patrick Kilchermann (Concealed Carry University) persuaded me, that and current events.

    Also, I switched to a XDs as my EDC piece. I believe the back strap safety provides the layer of silly mistake proofing I need to make me comfortable carrying with a chambered round. That's just one reason I so love the XD line.

    I, too, am interested to see how others on this forum answer this question.

    Every time, all the time. I'd be surprised to see many who differ.

    My EDC is a SR45 and it always has a round in the chamber. My holster covers the trigger. I've never outlived my Boy Scout motto, "Always be prepared "!!

    It's not going to do much good without 1 in the chamber,.......unless you want to just throw it at them.

    Thanks!
    S&W model 36.
    I purchased it new in the 70's for $131.00
    This is one I may never part with.
    I just bought a new MOD-2 for more capacity, but the 36 is still my all time go to firearm.

    Wow, $131. The wonders of inflation! Our Founders understood the dangers of fiat money!

    Is it a .357 mag?

    I have a 20 year old S&W 686 (.357) that I just LOVE and hit very well with, but I do prefer to carry a flatter, higher capacity piece (with one in the chamber of course). For me, the grip safety common to all members of the XD family provides the perfect amount of safety.

    I hope you come to love your new Mod2 almost as much as the 36.

    It,s a .38.
    Haven't used the MOD-2 yet.
    I plan on looking for a range gun to put my S&W model 59 into semi retirement.
    I may buy a 5.in tactical, because I'll have the same platform or a Walther PPQ longslide.
